Tort? We don't twist that way.
He might want to sue his lawyer as the lawsuit will likely do more damage to his reputation than any mobile application will.
Yesteryear popstar Chubby Checker is suing HP for selling todger tool The Chubby Checker from its webOS app store. Checker, who topped the charts in 1960 with The Twist, is taking the tech titan and its subsidiary Palm to task over the software, which claimed to predict a man's penis size from his shoe size. It was available …
They do, and all three of us who still use Palm phones have access to it. Nothing gets updated any more, though. Nobody has even bothered to develop a game in which you keep dunking Leo Apotheker in a shark tank. But I have never seen this application.
In a sane country the damages might be assessed at around 90 downloads at 99c = $90 with a rounding error, but in the US it's like the lottery - juries hand out insane damages in the hope that one day they might be able to sue someone and become rich. It was tried over here, but thank Dawkins the ambulance chasers mostly went bust.
Dear Mr. Checker,
1. Buy shares in the app company.
2. Start a website listing shoe sizes of all celebs.
3. Watch the money roll in from everyone who thinks they can find out what size To Cruise, Ahnuld, Stallone etc. have.
4. Invest 5$ in a similar app guesstimating lady celebs original boob sizes.
Sit back and get very rich.
A bug was found in the app that caused it to overestimate the pecker-to-foot ratio. The bug has now been circumcised (auch!) and the app given a new name, to indicate the more reliable prediction: it is now called the "Earnest Evans" app.
P.S.: app developer's comment: "Let me show you my Python..."
I recall that one pop star of the old days was more receently caught putting secret cameras in women's restrooms, but presumably it wasn't Chubby Checker - it isn't in Wikipedia anyway. Anyone know who I'm thinking of and whether they were guilty (that's really important)?
Also, isn't it rubbish about shoe size and the male member, this app was fraudulent in the first place.
